How To

A New Photography Assignment

Creative Exposure.  I think this assignment will separate the amateur from the pro, but this would not stop me from participating and would love for you to join also.  You have until Wednesday, May 26, 2010 to submit your photo, please visit Scott Thomas’s blog to learn more about the assignment.

If you were to compare my photography skill to a child, I’m like a toddler, I’m just learning how to walk and talk.  But I’m a bit impatient, so instead of walking, I take off running and never really learned to use my DSLR camera on a manual mode. A good thing that my camera has auto setting such as Full Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports, and Night Portrait.  The assignment Creative Exposure made me think of the term aperture or ISO, this really makes my head spin. These two photos below were taken with a Close-up mode, low aperture which means more opening for the light to get into the sensor.

My mission is to go out and shoot something this weekend, hopefully it will not rain on my photo hunt.

  1. Well done Nye.
    The large (low number) aperture gives depth to the image.
    I like the flower. In Danish it is called ‘Raketblomst’, directly translated: ‘Rocket Flower’.

    1. Thanks carsten, I have some photo from the boat race to submit, but don’t know how to do panning yet. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the info Nye! I will try my best to make it for this assignment since I missed the last one, but again, it depends on my busy schedule!

      1. Nye, it’ll be due around the time of a few major class assignment, but I’ll do my best to make it into this assignment, I hope I can join, I am looking forward towards it.

  3. Hi there!

    I got your blog from Geni at SweetandCrumby. She is a big fan of yours. I’m a photographer and new to blogging. I have a question she said you might be able to help me with. My email is My images look the same size while I’m putting the post together, however, when I preview, the 1st two are normal and the rest are thumbnail size. It’s not the actual image size (they are all the same). Do you have any suggestions on this? I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!! Love your blog!

    1. Hi photospaz, thanks for your kind comment. 🙂

      I normally post my image as the actual size instead of a thumbnail, see this screen shot of my image posting. The size is marked on “full size”, for the link URL I normally click “none” and this will remove the link, this is to prevent the image from being click-able, it’s a personal preference because I feel that it’s a distraction that takes away from the body of the post unless if the click is for a larger image. I hope this will help.

  4. Hi Nye. Thanks for getting back to me. I actually already did everything that you mentioned except for clicking “none” on the link. (Liked that!!!! Thx) I used full size, but when I would preview before posting, the last 4 or 5 images appeared as thumbnails even though they weren’t set up that way. Confusing! What I ended up doing is scaling all the images as close to the same as possible and it worked. I’m just not sure why since the images were all pretty close anyway.

    Anyway, I can’t wait to take the time to really get into your blog. First I have to get mine figured out! 🙂 Thanks again! Can I put you on my blog roll?

    1. photospaz, I re-size all my image so it would look uniform. This theme only allow me to go up to 480 and a photoblog would look nicer if it’s larger but since I like this theme so much that I decided to stick with it.

      Thanks, and I’ll add you to my blogroll also.

  5. I love how quick you are to respond! That’s awesome! I really do appreciate it. Geni said you were so sweet to help her out as well. 🙂 🙂
